Phd Student positions (Y2018/BIO-4826, NEMESIS-3D-CM)

PhD Student positions - UPM & H12O

Cerebral tumours intraoperatory classification through immersive 3D models.

April 2019

At the Centre on Software Technologies and Multimedia Systems (CITSEM), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain, (project leader: PhD. Eduardo Juárez) and the Hospital 12 de Octubre (H12O) Neurosurgery service (project leader: PhD. Alfonso Lagares), we are opening three 3-year positions for graduate students in the following areas:

  • Position 1: Design of new multidimensional image modalities for real-time brain tumour detection. More Information.
  • Position 2: Development of fusion-classification algorithms for different image modalities (including hyperspectral) in immersive 3D environments. More information.
  • Position 3: Design and development of High Performance Computing nodes for medical imaging fusion, classification & immersive 3D representation. More information.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals, passionate about (some of) the below described areas, with high commitment to the work, able to work independently, good collaborative skills and interest to engage in the project.

These positions are framed and funded within the Madrid’s Regional Synergetic R&D program NEMESIS-3D project “Brain Tumours Intraoperatory Classification through Immersive 3D Models”, which begins in January 2019. The three positions involve a highly intertwined work, so the candidates will be working in a close-collaborative environment.


  • MSc degree in Electrical/Computer/Telecommunications Engineering or Computer Science.
  • Exceptional undergraduate students about to finish their degrees on any of the above topics will also be considered (although they will have to complete previously the MSc. Program).
